FIR: Our new home

You may have noticed that the Fairness, Inclusion and Respect (FIR) programme has a new home on our website! 

As a standalone ‘topic’ this means you can navigate between FIR pages more easily. You can now also choose to receive bespoke marketing communications on FIR.

To check if your company has selected to receive FIR communications (and gain access to the new FIR assessment):

  1. Visit your company dashboard and click “view company profile”
  2. Select “edit profile”
  3. Tick FIR under “please select 1 or more topics your organisation is interested in”

FIR Assessment 

The FIR Assessment offers your organisation a structured way to develop and embed Fairness, Inclusion and Respect (FIR) in the workplace.

This approach, which is available to School “Admin” users, allows employers to support their workers and grow their business whilst incorporating FIR principles. Benchmark your knowledge to understand your best practice and areas for improvement.

Complete the assessment here >> 

How to get started? Admin users should follow these simple steps:

  1. Login to your school account 
  2. Ensure you are an admin on your corporate account by selecting “view all colleagues” and reviewing your assigned role, which should say “admin”. Only admins will be able to complete the assessment. If you need admin rights, please contact an admin/owner on your account or contact the school.
  3. Check your company has selected FIR as a topic of interest – To do this, go to the dashboard, click “view company profile” > “edit profile” > tick FIR under “Please select 1 or more topics your organisation is interested in”
  4. Take the FIR Assessment and click “submit your answers”
  5. Work through the assigned action plan

Don’t forget that once you’ve completed all the relevant learning, you can reassess and watch your score improve!
